Legendary cricketer and broadcaster, Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff is to host ITV’s brand new adrenaline fuelled gameshow Cannonball.  
 
Produced by Potato, the international hit format from Talpa is a high-octane series, in which contestants face a host of incredible inflatable obstacles and water-based challenges.
 
Joining Freddie as the pool side commentators are singer Frankie Bridge, presenters Radzi Chinyanganya and Maya Jama and comedian Ryan Hand who will be reporting on all the action as the contestants fly, fall or flop into the water. 
 
On each show, contestants of all ages will face supersized games in a custom-built water park that will test how high, how far and how fast they can fly through the air before they crash, splash, bang and wallop into the water on this adrenalin-fuelled fun-packed gameshow. The final will see contestants on a giant swing, launching themselves ‘cannonball-style’ at a huge moving target covering the surface of a gigantic deep-water tank as they attempt to become the winner of the coveted Cannonball Cup.
 
Each week 24 contestants will attempt all four water based challenges that will test their speed, accuracy, height and distance.  The challengers will rotate around the Cannonball course as they battle to be the winner of each game, gaining medals for their achievement. The three people with the most medals at the end of the heats will then go head to head in the final.
